Dapol Type A & Type B Tankers

Superb quality ready-to-run wagons, fully finished and complete with metal wheels, sprung couplings and sprung buffers.

AIR MINISTRY 14 TON TANK WAGONS

These are the new models being manufactured by Dapol from the ex-Lionheart tooling.

The majority of these tank wagons were built between 1939 and 1944 as Class ‘A’ wagons for aviation fuel, being 17’-6” long on a 10’-0” wheelbase fitted with RCH either side braking and split oil axleboxes. The tank was 7’-2” diameter containing 4275 gallons saddle mounted with two small platforms on the top of the tank.

After the war and around 1947, surplus tank wagons were converted to Class ‘B’ fitted with heating coils to help discharge of viscous fuel and bottom discharge.

The Dapol models cover both the original class ‘A’ and later converted ‘A’ to ‘B’.

The chassis contains a die-cast metal floor to add weight, a fully compensated chassis to improve running performance, brass bearings, die-cast wheels with steel tyres, sprung metal buffers, sprung die-cast hook and metal 3 link couplings.

Solebars, axleboxes and brake gear components are moulded in ABS plastic for strength.

These new liveries are expected late May / early June 2017 and we are taking advance orders for these now. The images shown are of the previous Lionheart examples, please refer to the listings to get the Dapol release running numbers that will be issued. As and when we get more information I will post it here.
